The first phase of the PDC Home Tour was filled with upsets and the first two nights of the Play-Offs have also delivered plenty of drama.

After Peter Wright's shock exit on Tuesday, Wednesday saw Belgian Mike De Decker topple PDC heavyweights Glen Durrant and Stephen Bunting.

De Decker would recover from an opening loss against Bunting to beat Alan Tabern and Durrant, earning four points on the night.

Bunting, meanwhile, had won his first two matches of the evening and held all the cards going into the last match of the night against Tabern.

However, despite requiring just four legs to top the group, the Bullet failed to get over the line as PDC veteran Tabern handed him a 6-2 beating which saw De Decker progress.

Gary Anderson is the headline act in Group 3 as the PDC Home Tour Play-Offs continue on Thursday.

The Flying Scotsman, who is a two-time PDC World Championship winner, is joined in the section by Luke Humphries, Jamie Lewis and Nick Kenny.

Underdog Kenny told Sky Sports that he admired Anderson as a youngster but believes he can cause an upset:

"Growing up Gary Anderson was my favourite player, he was the one I looked up to and I remember watching him in the BDO and then he came over and won the two World Championships in the PDC," he said.

"I'm looking forward to the first game against Gary and if I can start off well I could be in with a good chance. I am not just there to make the numbers up. I want to really have a good go at winning the group.

Anderson is 8/11 to win Group 3 with Humphries a 2/1 chance. Lewis is 13/2 while Kenny is 12/1 to advance to the semi-finals.
